We look forward to assisting you with a CRSC estimate. About 50% of those who request an estimate, do not provide adequate background information. We have tried to anticipate what info is needed for each scenario and the following outline is the result. We will not be able to provide an accurate estimate without this info.


CRSC Estimate

The following is needed for someone to compute your CRSC:
Accurate information needed within one reply:

1.--Average high three for basic pay (total of the highest 36 months of pay divided by 36)

Example Reply 2: The total of my highest 36 months of pay divided by 36 is $3600.


2.--DoD disability percentage
Example reply: My DOD disability retirement (Chapter 61) percentage shown in my retirement orders was 70%.

3. --Active duty years and months (or active duty equivalent for RC members which is total creditable points divided by 360). Your retirement orders will show your active duty equivalent on page one, about 3/4 down the first page as “Disability Retirement”.
Example reply: My active duty equivalent shown on my retirement orders was: 9 years and 8 months
Example reply 2: My total creditable points for retirement divided by 360 results in: 9 years and 8 months

6.--Whether you qualify for another type of retirement . Cite the type of other retirement for which you qualify such as reserve component at age 60. Example reply: I also qualify for a reserve retirement.

7.--Did you receive a REDUX/CSB payment? If REDUX was received, then all the info (amounts and description) on page one of your DFAS RAS is needed in addition to other info requested. Please show a description for each item. Example reply: I did not receive REDUX/CSB.

8.--Did you accept the Blended Retirement program option? Example reply: Yes I was under the blended retirement program.

============================


Considerations

--CRSC can never be more than the longevity portion of retired pay that was waived/lost

--CRSC can never be more than the amount associated with the service-approved combat-related percentage (CRSC approval). The amount is found in the VA compensation tables.

--CRSC for a Chapter 61 retiree with less than 20 years AD is the lesser (smaller amount) of the two items immediately preceding this remark (i.e., “CRSC can never…”)

--CRSC when combined with any residual retired pay, cannot exceed the dollar amount of the longevity portion of retired pay.
